The first half of Sunday's All Ireland quarter final between Mayo and Cork, will have long faded into the memory bank by the time the Mayo's meeting with Kerry comes around, but the second half is one that the fat will be chewed over a lot in the next 21 days. The first half was a bitty and often ill tempered affair where Mayo struggled to break down, Cork's blanket defence and the sides went in level at eight points each. Mayo ran down closed off avenues and their foot passing into their full forward line was wasn't sticking as Cork smothered the Mayo attack like jam on a warm slice of bread.
The school bags and uniforms are cast aside and the long summer break has begun for primary school children.
The inept display by the Galway minor footballers against Roscommon in the Connacht final was disappointing.
The one down-side to Kilkenny's magnificent inter-county success is that important club games are crammed into a busy schedule at the back end of the year. I know it's a nice dilemma to have and we're probably the envy of the country in that regard, but such was the volume of games on last weekend, that one would nearly have required a helicopter to get from venue to venue. It puzzled me why the two senior quarter-finals couldn't have been played together as double headers on Saturday and Sunday. Take Sunday for instance when there was one match in Callan and then another in Nowlan Park. People don't like being dragged all over the county on a Sunday when there's no need for it. I'm not for one minute here having a go at John Lockes, their pitch and facilities are the envy of most clubs in Kilkenny, it's just a little common sense could be used. Take Sunday again, if the intermediate quarter-final between Danesfort and Conahy Shamrocks had been played at noon, the double-header could have been watched by all in Nowlan Park. Just some food for thought for the fixtures’ committee.
Denis Walsh the new Cork manager must have wondered last Sunday evening what the hell he’d let himself in for, after Kilkenny had subjected his side to their heaviest defeat for many a year.
